The VBT machine is one of the most simple, economical machines on the market today.
The flat sided, semi-toroidal bottomed working area of the bowl ensures a perfectly homogenous distribution of components and media, making for optimum use of the full working bowl. Parts are extracted manually and in order to make this operation easier, the machine can be supplied with a reverse facility. Reversing the motor is designed to encourage the components being processed to come to the surface of the media, thereby making it easier to identify and unload them.
The VBT machine is recommended for the processing of medium/large items, where automatic unloading does not have any particular advantage or where unloading over a dam and screen may cause damage to delicate parts. In addition, where the machine is to be used for a variety of parts of different sizes and batches, an auto-unload machine has no real advantage over the VBT.
